Appreciate her ultimate sacrifice protecting our city. I came upon a plaque in this park honoring Officer Englehardt that led me here. It did not mention the details of the event. Deeply saddened we lost her. The Egyptians have a saying, “To speak of the passed is to have them live again. I’m so happy to see good people doing that for Julie.

AJ (Aunt Julie) would have been 66 on the 3rd of February, but she was taken from us too soon. I often wonder what my life would be like if I had her to confide in.

Julie, so glad we were friends. Thanks for the rides to school at Eastern High. Thanks for the ride alongs while you were on duty. That one call, don’t remember what it was but I’ve never gotten from the south end to the north end of Lansing so fast. Loved getting to know both of your sisters and your Mom. Your sisters and I picked out the beautiful burgundy dress you were buried in. I was always thankful your Mom passed before you. She always had the police scanner on. I can’t imagine her sitting home alone listening to what was happening to you.

Julie and I were friends during high school years and later. She and her mother encouraged me to learn how to knit. I remember her search for the right career, and once she found it she never stopped talking about it: she loved helping people and she really enjoyed her work. She was a courageous woman, so full of life. I'll never forget her.

Two days after my 12th birthday, my Aunt was taken from me. I often think or her and wonder what my life would be like if I had her to talk to. I pass her picture in the hallway every day. I'd like to thank everyone who left a comment through the years. She's gone, but not forgotten.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 23rd anniversary of your death. Your memory lives and you continue to inspire. Thank you for your service. My cherished son Larry Lasater was a fellow police officer murdered in the line of duty on April 24, 2005 while serving as a Pittsburg, CA police officer.

Time never dimishes respect. I pray for solace for all those who love and remember you for I know both the pain and pride are forever.

Rest In Peace
